I don’t know about you, but I hate purchasing cards at a store. The prices seem to keep climbing but the quality isn’t. I would much rather make my own and really customize them to the recipient. Plus, you can make them for any occasion, whether it be a commercial holiday or not. These embossed DIY watercolor cards are inexpensive to make and only takes a few minutes. Add as many or as little embellishments you want to get the perfect card.
I especially love giving my children the tools to make their own cards. Anyway that I can encourage creativity, I do. These embossed DIY watercolor cards are easy enough that a child can make them – in fact, my 7 year old helped with the one I’m sharing today. Set aside an hour one weekend for you and your child to churn out some cards that you can set aside for when you need them! Quality bonding time at it’s finest.
